for is the one who is up this week. on thursday of this week, president obama's nominee to head the cia, john brennan, will face the senate intelligence committee for his confirmation hearing as the director of central intelligence. one of the very first thing president obama did you might remember when he first became president at the start of his first term in 2009 was that he dropped the bush administration's torture policy. remember, he did that right away. he issued an executive order two davis taking office to doubly, triply extra ban torture in the united states. at the start of that first term, newly elected president obama also wanted to nominate john brennan to be the head of the cia. but he didn't end up putting him forward. john brennan ended up taking his name out of contention for that nomination because of opposition to him being chosen. and the opposition centered on the fact that john brennan had been deputy executive director of the cia during the bush days. during the bad old torturing prisoners days of the george w. bush administration. so you're going to have a brand-new
the confirmation for the man who the president wants to be the director of the cia. >>> and we're finally learning why the united states military didn't come to the rescue in gauze gl benghazi, libya. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." we begin with a desperate manhunt in southern california under way right now. police have linked a fired officer to a series of what they call atrocious crimes. christopher jordan dorner is suspected of killing three people and wounding two others. he's still at large and police say he has access to multiple weapons and assault rifles. cnn's kyung lah is joining us from los angeles where the police chief is calling it extremely worry some and scare ree. what's the latest kyung? >> reporter: certainly scary for anyone connected to the police department in southern california. this is where today's shooting spree began but all of this, wolf, began earlier this week. the murder spree began on sunday with the double killing of a newly engaged couple, monica quan and keith lawrence, quan, the daughter of a retired lapd captain, the officer who represented
of the cia with the expansion of the drone program. you ran it in some form, operational aspect of it at the cia. do you run actually less, are you in charge of less of the drone defenpartment at the defe department? >> we're the ones who supply the cia. >> who makes the call? >> it depends on the operation. the best thing i've seen in four years is we really have a very good military intelligence partnership now with regards to going after al qaeda, and there are operations that we've developed in which we developed the targets and then we make the decision who is best able to go after the targets and it's a very synchronized good operation that gives us the best of military information and intelligence. >> the drone wes don't have a big debate in the united states, the new cover of "time" magazine, but retired general mccrystal, here's what he said about drones during this book tour. "what scares me about drone strikes is how they are perceived around the world, the resentment created by american use of unmanned strikes, is much greater than the average american appreciates. t
a lot of secret things that our government does through the cia and special forces, but the theory here is that the executive branch is not allowed to do it on its own, that there's at least oversight from congress. and in the past we've known, the new jersey committees -- intell committees on the hill have always been lap dogs and not watch dogs. the memo that we see today doesn't have anything along those lines, and to me that's the most worrisome because we can come up here with different hypothetical scenarios and argue whether they justify use of drones or not, but i want someone who actually is doing this and reviewing this on a day-to-day basis. >> on that basis, ryan, we have hearings thursday for the president's nominee for cia director, john brennan, and he helped design this very program. should we expect that this memo is going to formulate much of the questioning that he has to sustain and take on thursday? >> well, this memo ought to as well as his history with the cia's torture of suspects who were in detention. all of those things are going to be bubbling up here, but, y

can expect to get a rare glimpse inside the secret world of the cia. later today. it's all part of a confirmation hearing for john brennan. as the next head of the spy agency. he's expected to be questioned about the controversial policy that allows drone strikes against terror suspects, even those who are american citizens. civil liberties groups say such strikes are unconstitutional. >> it justifies essentially a claim that the executive branch can be judge, jury and executioner. >> trying to head off the controversy ahead of the hearing today, the white house has ordered that top lawmakers be given secret documents that explain the white house's drone policy. >>> a boeing 878 dreamliner will fly from texas to washington state today, but that doesn't mean it's closer to carrying passengers any time soon. 787s are grounded while investigators try to determine what caused a fire in one of them and smoke inside of another. the plane's lithium ion battery is under scrutiny. a lead investigator says the batteries aren't necessarily unsafe. but boeing needs to build reliable safegua
and diana, back to you. >> all right, jim. thanks a lot. >>> now we turn to capitol hill where cia nominee john brennan has strongly defended the use of drones against terror targets. brennan told lawmakers that drone strikes are used only against targets planning to carry out attacks against the u.s. but never merely as retribution. he promised to tell congress every time the cia targets and kills suspected terrorists. >> if i were to go to cia ands the cia was involved in any type of illegal activity, i would damn well make sure this committee had that type of information. absolutely. >> after the hearing, intelligence committee chair dianne feinstein called for more openness about drone strikes. the senator says lawmakers may set up a special court to actually regulate those strikes. >> talking about, this is a hot button issue. at the very beginning of that hearing, it was interrupted repeatedly by protesters who came in, and eventually the entire room had to be cleared and only people authorized to be there, because it was supposed to be open to the public, they were asked to leave. i
to take over the cia, the white house has to answer some tough questions about its overseas drone program. the catalyst is a leaked white house memo obtained by nbc's michael isikoff that justifies in certain cases attacks on american citizens abroad. the white house has forced strong criticisms from advocates over the drone policy. ron wyden tweeted today every american has the right to know when the government believes it is allowed to kill them. what's surprising people is how much most americans seem to casually accept this as the cost of doing business in a dangerous world. eugene robbins is a columnist and david corn is from mother jones. both are msnbc political analysts. let's take a look here at ed carney, the president's spokesman, talk about this. it was a briefing today and carney defended the president's position on drones but also faced some tough questions. let's listen. >> i won't talk about specific instances, but the fact is that the methods that we use are designed specifically to avoid civilian casualties. i think it's fair to say that far fewer civilians lose their li
debate as opposed to payments by the cia in anbar province. there's a big debate about what actually made a difference. and hagel was saying, look, even if this thing made things better tactically, strategically, it still didn't make sense because the larger thrust of the war didn't make sense. you understand why he was resisting answering that. we can argue about whether it was the best way politically, but substantively, it was an impossible question to answer. >> donny, he should have been more confident in why he was resisting to answer that because as richard pointed out, there's a clear discussion about that. >> it's very easy to say a bad performance, that was serious what happened yesterday. there was a level of incompetency across the board, whether it was preparation, whether it was demeanor, whether it was just understanding of facts and policy, and like i said earlier, i'm going to liken it to a job interview. if you go on an interview like that and you perform, you don't get the job. i think this is such a critical appointment. you have to look at that -- >> should he not get
would gut the cia and the intelligence platform. it is just not about tanks and planes, the smallest air force in the history of the country. the smallest army since 1940. it is about the cia. it is about the intelligence gathering capabilities of the country. it is also about the department of education. it is about nondefense matters. so i am hopeful that we can finally start voting in the senate rather than just complaining about what the house does. we bear responsibility as republicans for allowing this to happen. lead us to a better solution. if you do not, mr. president, you will go down in history as one of the most irresponsible commanders in chief in the history of the country. you allow the finest military in the history of the world to deteriorate at a time when we need it the most. let's not let that happen. >> let me just add or emphasize three quick points. the first is reducing civilians by attrition is a good idea, even at dod. i would just remind you that yesterday the recently departed undersecretary for policy, argued in "the washington post" that we needed to reduce
